About the Book

Even if you have a job, there’s a good chance you want to find a better one.

If you’re actively looking for work or seeking to make a change, you know it can be quite stressful--it’s similar to the uncomfortable feeling, or “yips,” that most golfers experience on the course.

Amateur golfer Chuck McConnell with twenty years in career services and job transition, compares these two stresses to help job hunters, golfers and non-golfers alike, improve their perspectives while locating and securing great jobs.

Whether you’re unemployed, underemployed, or just seeking new opportunities, you’ll get guidance that will help you:

  • Prepare for your next job interview;
  • Define your skills and market yourself to companies that need you;
  • Practice and take aim to achieve your goal.

By looking at your job search in a new way, you’ll be entertained and inspired to do the hard work that’s necessary to Conquer Your Yips: Win the Employment You Target.
